Jugs Challenge ...

Hi ... this is my second post today 
I have been out most of the day and suddenly realised that the challenge at  "Just Us Girls"  finishes in a few hours... and this challenge is right up my alley ... Alter A Notebook ... 
You all know how I love to make books!
Trouble is... it is dark here and having made my book ... I am really struggling to photograph it ... So I apologise now for the really poor quality photos ...


I made a hardback one this time using thick card and covering it it with papers from We R memory keepers ... 


This is a side view and you can see I added one of my handmade dangly charms ... and the reflection is from a clear creation from Making Memories


I also used a scrap of burlap, one of those pretty Narratives from Lynnda ... a heart I cut from cardboard and painted ... some lace ... a flower from Prima and some paper curls ... and the inside


 I make a new notebook for each new term of Philosophy ... this will be perfect come September ... I'm just sorry that the pictures are not so good ...
Before I go ... Happy Birthday to Pam Imholz  at JUGS who celebrates her birthday this week too
Have a lovely evening

Till soon

Dreams ...

Good Morning!

It's a lovely sunny morning here again and really I can't complain about our summer ... It hasn't been scorching hot and it hasn't rained everyday ... so for me that's just fine!
As I sit to write this ... my Mum's favourite song has come on the radio ... Would you believe "Boyzone" ... "No Matter What " ... 
It was played at her funeral and I know the words are very significant to us as a family ...
I am a prolific dreamer ... I can remember my dreams too ... sometimes they are not good ... But hearing this song ... well last night I dreamed about my Mum and my Dad ... the whys and wherefores would mean nothing to you ... but the overall point was that I got to hug my Dad and tell him that we love him very very much and asked him to promise to be the father we needed ... to 'stay' with us ... It was something that needed to be said and IRL we never got the chance to ... my Dad was full of remorse and my brother ... who is going through such an ordeal right now ... he was there with me ... and thanked me for speaking to our Dad ... I feel like it was significant ... like somewhere my Mum and Dad are there for us and this morning I am feeling very comforted ...

I just have a couple of things to share ... a card I made for a gentlemen I know who celebrated his 90th Birthday recently ... I swear he doesn't look a day over 75 and I was shocked to find out how old he is ... For many years he kept pigeons ... I know he misses them dearly ... so I used my Tim Holtz die for this 


I used some distress inks on this birdie too ...


And I also thought I'd show you some of the Dangly things I have done for my mini notepads ... I'm no jewellery maker ... that's for sure ... but I like to try ...


Well I guess I have to start somewhere huh?

So that's it for today ... I'm going to leave you for now and hope you have a wonderful day 
Till soon
